    I have recompile parport_pc's source code (i'd just added a pair of
    printks in the init_module()) and I have found that when trying loading
    the module the computer do not freeze down as it did before. Now it
    starts loading the module but receives a SIGSEGV signal. I send you a
    trace for the next command:

    [root@lago parport]# strace -o /root/traceado2.txt insmod -v

    execve("/sbin/insmod", ["insmod", "-v",
    "/usr/src/linux-2.4/drivers/parport/parport_pc.o"], [/* 24 vars */]) = 0
    -- some other stuff --
    init_module("parport_pc", 0x8071d18 <unfinished ...>
    +++ killed by SIGSEGV +++

    Now if I look up the actives modules on system, parport_pc appears in
    /initialization state/.

    [root@lago parport]# lsmod
    Module Size Used by
    parport_pc 16160 1 (initializing)

    I don't know if that helps in any way, but...

    PS: None of the printk's calls appears in the screen.
